I disagree... 'ballast' is at least useful in keeping a ship upright. If you meant to use a similar term such as "dead weight", then I'd be more inclined to agree. The term "dead weight" more aptly describes the situation, as it signifies a heavy load that greatly hinders an action while providing no real benefit to those dragging it around.
